Subject: Re: [Az-Geocaching] Geocaching and State Trust Land

Seems like you opened another can of worms - Tucson Mountain Park and now State Trust Land. I think we are trying too hard to follow the letter and not the intent. How many Trust Land Permits are issued to people just for the purpose of Geocaching? I for one WILL NOT be removing my caches from State Trust Land, don't think it matters in the big picture, if they have known about it for 4 years they have not addressed it. I hope others feel the same. This is a local issue and doesn't involve Groundspeak, we can police our own and settle any matters. Sometimes it is best to leave well enough alone.

Interesting reply from Last_True_Viking - no caches in AZ but wants to remove them.

trying to organize a CITO on State Trust Land, we were informed that
Geocaching is NOT an authorized recreation on State Trust Land.

I will be sending out as an email to some friends as well as archiving all my caches on state land within the next two weeks.

I was directed to re-read my application for permit:

The Permittee shall not cause any refuse or allow any other foreign objects to be deposited on State Trust Land.

is not allowed on State Trust Land. Anyone can call the State
Environmental Resources & Trespass office @ 602 542-2119 and ask to
speak with Jody Latimer, Bill Webster or Ken Lamb if they have

I was told by Ken that in 2007
when he took over the web page there was no reference to Geocaching and
never will be because it is covered in the application as leaving
behind forien objects.

He (Ken) also tells me they have tried to contact Groundspeak many times but have not received a response.

So. I am archiving my caches with a note and it will go from there, however Groundspeak decides to act on it.

I will be picking up my containers as I can and will remove any found logs after the date of this posting.

Hopefully Groundspeak can make out some sort of an arrangement with the
State Land Office, but from the talking to I got, I doubt it will
